Report: Netflix Eyes ‘Punisher’ Spinoff With Jon Bernthal

Netflix Punisher Spinoff Jon Bernthal
Marvel / Netflix


Even after Marvel set fandom ablaze with news that Jon Bernthal’s Punisher would join Daredevil Season 2, rumors have flown of granting the character his own spinoff, perhaps even taking over as one of the Defenders. Now, the former appears to be true, as Marvel was impressed enough with Bernthal’s Frank Castle to consider a spinoff.

Take this one with a grain of salt for the moment, though TVLine confirms that Marvel and Netflix are at least considering the possibility, weeks ahead of the character’s official debut in Daredevil Season 2. Should The Punisher move forward with his own series, it remains unclear if he’d join the Defenders teamup special, or stay independent, as the character often dictates.

Elsewhere of Daredevil Season 2, we know for sure that Rosario Dawson has been confirmed to reprise her role as Claire Temple, along with Scott Glenn’s Stick. In addition to Elodie Yung’s Elektra and Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, past Bullseye reports listed Marvel’s Mister Fear and Spider-Man villain Mysterio as potential villains for the season as well, though no confirmations have emerged. Drew Goddard remains aboard as a consultant, though the series has changed showrunners from Steven DeKnight to Marco Rodriguez and Doug Petrie.

In the meantime, check out photos and trailers of Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 below, and stay tuned for the latest developments on both The Punisher and his March 18 premiere!
